He posted an 11-17-2 record with the Oilers this season, along with a 3.36 goals-against-average, a .894 save percentage and two shutouts.

Drafted 14th overall by the Oilers in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Dubnyk has played in 171 career NHL regular-season games, posting a record of 61-76-21 with eight shutouts, a career 2.88 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage.
